HAVRUTA one-on-one sessions provide preventive and preservative cognitive care for the elderly and for people with dementia (pre-clinical stage, mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and first to second stage of dementia).
The sessions aim to slow down the loss of abilities and help in their preservation. Personally tailored activities stimulate dormant skills and interests, addressing emotional, intellectual, spiritual and social needs.
HAVRUTA also provides guidance and support sessions for the family (and other caregivers) of people with dementia.
We are extremely happy with Rachel "Havruta for the elderly" who has been teaching and caring for my 80 year old mother following a stroke, this past year. Her unique approach combining learning Torah, massage, music, relaxation techniques has borne wonderful results for my mother. We highly recommend Rachel as a professional and caring person.

I came across the ad for Havruta for Elders by chance and the sessions have been just what we were looking for. Rachel has patience, sensitivity , the ability to to make a rapport with her "havruta".My mother"s birthday was coming up and together they learned from my mother"s parsha and found in it points that were relevant to her as a person The sessions are varied and tailor made for the elder"s needs. As a result we have seen dormant skills resurface. These sessions are the highlight of my mother"s week. Highly recommended
